Always in the distance, always fixed, and always shimmering right in time with the silent stars. Take me to the rubble of our home, where I can lie with the animals that love me more than you do.
And when we are there at last , I never want to speak. I never want to sing. I never want to cry. I never want to see anyone but you.
Love The World
We stay the same, or we change, and congratulations if you've changed at all. Years have worn down the layers, and now I'm made of new, tender skin. So rough me up, and break me in. Every touch is something new I've waited years for. Lost inside faulty minds, we will break them open and be free.
Love yourself, every portion. Then forget it. Then love the world. It's all I know.
Carols And Prayers
You're not sure why you sing or what the lyrics mean. You're not moved by empty prayer or winter skies. Folding up the missalette, you leave it on the pew. Breaking up the coastal fog, the bells cut through.
A candle lit for every week that passes by, a candle lit for every small and harmless lie, a candle lit for every kindness you forgot, a candle lit for every wicked thing you thought, a candle lit for all the lonely souls you haunt, a candle lit for all the losing wars you fought, a candle lit for every beast inside a pen, a candle lit for hoping we get home again.
The air is still. The fields are cold. The animals are hushed. Too much wine to comprehend what I behold. A voice, I couldn't tell from where, came singing in my head. A whispered word, a silent prayer, my lips were bled.
The Holy Ghost
Oh, to be! Oh, to be free of cliches forever! Oh, to be! Oh, to be a holy ghost! I will lay me down in the white snow drifts. I will melt there in your memory, wrapped in ashes pale and powdery. Oh, to shake! Oh, to to speak with the world's tongue forever! Oh, to cry out! Oh, to sing out your name! Dust we once were. Dust we will be, dust that's scattered among the fruit trees, dust that wanders, dust completely.
Sing of the trees draped in snow. Sing of the mountains crusted with glaciers. Sing of the sky. Sing of the birds. Sing of the world in which you want to live.
Dust we once were. Dust we will be, dust that's scattered among the fruit trees, dust that wanders, dust completely. Kiss me gently on the rough sea. Pour me out there, setting me free. Hear my last prayer: dust completely.
